ORONO, Maine — Police were called to the Orchard Trails apartment complex early Saturday morning to deal with a fight between two roommates that resulted in one being charged with assault and criminal mischief, Orono police Capt. Josh Ewing said Monday.

When Emily Fiorini, 21, returned home at around 2:50 a.m., she determined her laptop had been damaged and blamed her roommate, the police captain said.

“She pounded on the door [of the roommate], and when she opened the door she was assaulted by Emily,” Ewing said. “Several items owned by the victim also were smashed.”

The roommate suffered a couple of small scrapes to her face during the fight, Ewing said. Fiorini was charged with assault and criminal mischief. She was not arrested. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
